. and then deval did the right thing by picking up the torch and working to make the law work even better. and it's because you guys had a proven model that we built the affordable care act on this template of proven bipartisan success. your law was the model for the nation's law. so let's look at what's happened. today the affordable care act requires insurance companies to abide by some of the strongest consumer protections this country has ever known. a true patients bill of rights. no more did he say crim naturing against kids with preexisting conditions.scriminating against kids with preexisting conditions. no more dropping your policy when you get sick and need it most. no more lifetime limits or restrictive annual limits. most plans now have to cover free preventive care, like mammograms and birth control. young people can stay on their parents' plans until they turn 26. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. now, the last element of this began on october 1st. so when the affordable care act created a new marketplace for quality, private insurance plans for the 15% or
the massachusetts health care law. the same law that become the framework for the affordable care act. i don't remember conservatives complaining about the law then. back then everyone was all smiles, even this guy. a top official at the conservative think tank, the heritage foundation. look how happy he is. but now suddenly the heritage foundation is the group leading the charge against the president's health care law. it's even supported senator ted cruz's anti-obama care tour this summer. and today senator cruz continued that crusade at the headquarters for the heritage foundation. >> it is a particular privilege being here at heritage, heritage plays such an important role in helping articulate and defend conservative principles across this country. and in no fight has that been more apparent than in the fight over obama care. >> but republicans were on the other side of that fight just a few years ago. they've completely flip-flopped. now the whole right wing is against it. why? because president obama is for it. but he's come too far to back down now. >> and if if was hard doing it jus
of massachusetts, willard mitt romney sat down to sign his first legislation of health care reform law. nothing like it existed in the country back then. but republican mitt romney and the late democratic senator ted kennedy and a bunch of other folks from the state worked very, very hard to craft a law that made universal coverage possible in the great state of massachusetts. governor romney signed that law publicly with a big grin on his face back in 2006. well, today, president obama returned to that very room to talk about his signature health care law, which is based on what massachusetts did that worked so well in that state. the president was introduced by mitt romney's successor in massachusetts, governor duval patrick, and both the president and his friend, governor patrick, talked about what has gone wrong or can go wrong, with health care in your state. they talked about what could go wrong in the initial rollout, what goes wrong and how that stuff can get fixed. >> but our launch seven years ago was not flawless. we asked an i.t. staffer who has been at our connecter since the begin
intentions. left over halloween imagery for you there. a deep dive to the effort to fix campaign cash laws that set washington on a course for dysfunction. good morning. it's friday, november 1st. i'm always thinking about another race ahead and another contest. at 1600. let's start with the first reads of the morning. we will talk weekly round up of all things. hillary clinton is not exactly hunkering down and keeping a low profile. in case you missed it, she has an aggressive fall schedule. as impressive as any potential presidential candidate. over the last ten days, a flurry of speeches and fund-raisers has taken her from buffalo new york to chicago to beverly hills. this afternoon, pennsylvania. she key notes the conference for women in philadelphia. it ends a week where we learned every woman in the senate, democratic side is privately signed a letter urging her to run. hollywood in the form of the once close supporter who had split with them to support obama in 2008 is wacking enthusiastic. otherconfidants claim she is running. >> i'm behind hillary if she runs. that's up to her. if
of that law were found unconstitutional. one third of clinics were set to close their doors when the law would have gone into effect. one provision required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges of a hospital within 30 miles of that abortion facility. federal district judge wrote the admitting privileges provision of house bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and in any event places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a non-viable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her. the judge struck down some of the law's restriks on the use of pills used to induce apportion. wendy davis issued this warning during her filibuster of the bill. >> i'd say if you vote for this bill you're simply happy to ignore medical science and watch women and children die for no reason. >> texas families are stronger and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools ra
as the president stood in boston's historic faneuel hall where mitt romney signed into law the health care plan that became the prototype for obama care. >> there's no denying it. right now the web site is too slow. team people have gotten stuck. and i am not happy about it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. >> mr. obama argued romney care wasn't perfect at first, either. >> enrollment was extremely slow. within a month, only about 100 people had signed up. >> but there are also big ditcheses. former romney aides like ex-spokesman ryan williams are disgusted with the comparisons. >> what do you make of that? >> pathetic. >> romney had the late senator ted kennedy by his side, a bipartisan achievement the president wasn't able to match. >> president obama has not done a good job managing the process. he has not hired competent people to run this program. i think we're seeing the disastrous results of that right now. >> romney also rejected the comparison in a statement, saying "had president obama actually learned the lessons of massachusetts health care the inst
moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican pa
, the way the law is written -- >> it's a yes or no. let's say you're wrong on that. yes or no, if you're wrong, will you? >> i don't want misinformation to american public. i don't want to give misinformation -- >> i want you to research -- if you're wrong -- will you go into the exchanges? >> if i'm wrong -- >> if you can, will you? that's a yes or no. >> reporter: those are the two being pushed out by the rnc rapid response team, circling in on the answer by sebelius where she says whatever, that is something which you're ever before a congressional committee you never want to say because it will go viral quite quickly. it's a very contentious issue on capitol hill right now because a lot of members are going to enroll staffs in the d.c. exchange and they want to have the same standard for the administration and that's why she got hit hard with that. overall from conversations i've had with republicans and democrats, the general consensus is at a sebelius kept her head above water and took fault for what happened and accepted blame. she said it was a debacle. she said it wasn't acce
, and the response from law enforcement, the response from those who are responsible for that airport and the surroundings. how did it all play out? >> well, on the one hand one of the things that played out here one of the kinds of nightmare scenarios that passengers law enforcement and tsa think that is an attack by a person who is apparently at least acting alone. there is no warning. there is no group. there is no history of this sort of thing happening. frankly, anyone who is thinking that this sort of attack has a wealth of opportunity because there are hundreds of airports around this country. all of them has to be prepared for something like this. it happened to be at l.a.x. and you would think that this is an airport with tremendous capability, tremendous firepow firepower, tremendous police force. it could have happened at a smaller airport, but at the same time i think the same thing would have happened, a smaller airport would have had police arrive, and security would have been put in motion. from the press conference earlier the police say this person got in the terminal
benefits of this law, and this outreach is coming as the administration keeps getting hit with headlines like this in "usa today." small firms race health deadline. in the "washington post" sticker shock leads to anger. add to all of this that the associated press now estimating that more than three million people have already received cancellation notices from their insurers. >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what, you're going to keep your health care plan? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there is to say it's not hindsight. >> re-election rival and former governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the found
under the obama health care law. but she insisted because there are so many more options now because of obama care, people can eventually get lower priced health care policies. but that was very difficult for her to explain because it is a confusing process. you saw republican after republican showing stories, telling anecdotes about constituents having problems getting on website. that was an important kind of learning experience that people who are watching this could get. understanding why if they got a letter from their health insurance company they were losing their health care and what they could do in the future. of course, because you have a lot of republicans, in fact all of the republicans there opposed the law to begin with, it was a little bit interesting to hear them complain about the process that they didn't want to happen in the first place. >> dana, stand by for a moment. this is an exchange that kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and human services had with congress woman marsha blackburn, republican of tennessee. >> so who is responsible for overseeing this
obstruction. the law was passed when republicans didn't control any part of congress. but that's what they are doing. they want people to think that the site will get fixed and in the meantime blame the republicans. >> that may be the case now, the website will improve over time. and when it does, what then, eric? >> the republicans can't just focus on the website. the administration is building it up. once the site works they will claim that obama care will surface. republicans need to focus on the people losing insurance. the website will improve over time. >> listen to senator feinstein. listen to what she recommends. >> they ought on takedown the website until it is right. they believe they need to keep it running. >> she's a democrat, takedown the sight. she is in the minority voice. >> she is. and also said the president said you could keep your health insurance really only meant until obama care went in affect. they will keep it going. if people don't get insurance they will pay the individual man date. >> there is a host of issues that follow that. republicans are calling for
of this law, correct? why aren't you in the exchange? >> because i'm part of the federal employee health benefits plan. >> why won't you go into the exchange? you're part of this law. you're literally in charge of this law. should you be any different than all of the other americans out there who are losing their health insurance today? >> i'm part of the 95% with affordable, available health coverage as are most of your colleagues. >> most americans -- it isn't available to them. why will you not agree? -- >> i'm not eligible for the exchange because i have coverage in -- >> you could decide to drop your coverage of your employer. you have the choice to decide not to choose -- >> that is not true, sir. >> i chose not to go -- >> members of congress are now part of the exchange thanks to an amendment added by congress -- >> with all due respect -- >> if i have affordable coverage in my workplace, i'm not eligible to go into the marketplace. that's part of the law. >> i would encourage you to be just like the american people and enter the exchange and agree to find a way to do that. >> it
if they liked it. but when pressed if the president of the responsible for the law failures, she said, whatever, yes. he is the president. fox news chief congressional correspondent mike emmanuelle on capitol hill with our report. >> reporter: kathleen sebelius defending the roll out of president's health care law but said, she is accountable. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. so let me say to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> reporter: chairman upton accused sebelius and others of false advertising prior to healthcare.gov launch. >> over months leading to october 1 launch, secretary and her colleagues at hhs looked us in the eye, and testified that everything was on track. >> reporter: after a lot of finger pointing, republican blackburn from tennessee pressed on who is to blame, asked if it was any of the top medicare officials. >> michelle snide ser snider is. >> excuse me, michelle snider is not responsible, hold me accountable i am responsible. >> reporter: the web site was taken off line last night and remained out of co
) >>> the supreme court has rejected oklahoma's bid to revive a state law that the state's own high court said would effectively ban all drug-induced abortions. nbc justice correspondent pete williams joins me now to explain. pete, is this about ru-486 and like drugs? >> it is. it's about a two-pill system for inducing a medicinal as opposed to surgical abortion early in a pregnancy. it involves ru-486 and one other pill. what several states have done is to say if you're going to use these pills, doctors have to abide by the original fda labeling. none of the doctors who prescribe this system were using the fda labeling because they said it required too much medication. it required doctor visits that weren't necessary and it would have vastly restricted it. the oklahoma supreme court struck the law down saying it was unconstitutional. oklahoma appealed to the supreme court and in the spring, the court agreed to hear the case, but it said we're not quite certain what this law means. oklahoma supreme court please define it for us. last week the answer to that homework assignment came. the oklahoma sup
shortcomings in the same place where the successful massachusetts health care law got its start. but he says romney care also had a pretty rocky beginning. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius finally takes her turn in the hot seat, grilled for hours about the obama care website. >> you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable for you for fixing these problems. >> and the national security agency pushing back against allegations that it penetrated google and yahoo! data centers while european you're pea a eur against u.s. claims that everybody spies. you're in the situation room. sebelius got a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care als
the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is you've got to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act act from the very beginning. >> essentially saying if you like your plan and they changed the plan to something you shouldn't like, i will change it for you. first off on the qualifying statement, 60% of all of these exchanges only have one option across the country. so you can't shop, you only have one product to choose from number one. number two, they did the slightest change to the health care which you hads, you are able to be kicked off, no longer to be grandfathered. the president did a wonderful two-step. instead of saying if you like your plan you can keep your plan. if you like your plan, you'll be able to keep it unless we deem it not good enough for
. >> reporter: that's just general condition. under current of law they're not allowed to tell us what shape toes people are in. there is still a lot to learn at lax, and we hope that it will unfold in the hours to come. it will be a while, and it will be hours before this airport is up and running normally. >> brian rooney for us at los angeles international airport. we're learning more first-hand accounts who were in the airport when the gunman started shooting. >> everyone just dropped to the ground and started crawling along, staying as low as possible. basically, everyone was just climbing over each other. we were pinned in where the guy was shooting, and tsa main security. >> i turned around, and there was a young man who was in an tsa agent outfit who was holding his abdomen area, and there was blood on his hands. >> the police came charging towards me, and hands up, they handcuffed me and left me on the ground. >> i was freaking out. i was really shaken up. i didn't expect--i mean, going on vacation you don't expect to deal with that kind of stuff. i was freaking out. >> they came ba
's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous oh criticism of the law and its rollout. later this evening, the president will speak about the benefits of health care reform at an organizing for action event. and later this week, he'll travel to texas to thank volunteers helping people enroll in the new health care exchanges. the president is keeping up a furious public information push, as dueling headlines leave many consumers still confused over the law and its impact. in the "washington post" for consumers whose health premiums go up, sticker shock leads to anger. in the "new york times" millions eligible for free policies. and i'm sure you can imagine that last story was not the one singled out by losing presidential candidate mitt romney on "meet the press." >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from, and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that th

. and step number two is getting information to folks that the law even exists. >> this is what is so, so important. big picture here, the young people. and many of them don't even know this law exists. and those who do know it exists are trying to logon to a website that doesn't always work. it young healthy people cannot or do not sign up for health insurance, can obama care be saved? with me from washington, two of the best a.b. stoddard, associate editor of the hill, and ryan lizza. hello to both of you again. >> hello, brooke. >> hello, hello. you both watches the hearing along with us. i want to ask what piqued your political interest in a minute. first, this is the list we wanted from you. three ways to save obama care. we asked you both for your prescriptions. a.b., i'm beginning with you first. taking a look at your list, you say fix the website. you say, increasesebelius. >> right, you say increase penalties for opted out, and number three, launch a p.r. campaign of obama care happy stories. a.b., let me hone in on this increasing penalties for opting out. what do you mean? >> w
to the very spot in boston where mitt romney signed romney care into law. and there, president obama defended the affordable care act. >> president obama is expected to share the limelight. >> so health care reform in this state was a success. >> president obama is minutes away. >> stop in boston by the president. >> from a critical speech on his health care law. >> let's face it. we've had a problem. >> website glitches. >> website hasn't worked the way it is supposed to. >> no doubt about that. >> no excuse for it. apologize. >> i am accountable to you for fixing these problems. >> taking the blame. >> kathleen sebelius. >> we were wrong. we must fix it. >> a few committee members. >> had their rehearsed one-liner. >> to be played on cable news. >> some people like to drive a ford not a ferrari. >> has a man ever delivered a baby. >> of come on in the water is fine. >> toto, we are not in kansas. >> the proverbial, we are not in kansas any more. >> you are from kansas. we are not in kansas anymore. >> you clearly, whatever. >> we are working overtime to improve it every day. >> that's good
fixing obama care, making sure the law works, has to be top priority and with today's announcement that some big tech companies are contributing experts to help fix healthcare.gov, it's pretty clear the administration knows that. wolf? >> the news is not good over at the white house. let's move on. the health care law says that members of congress and congressional staff have to go into these new obama care insurance exchanges but some lawmakers are planning to exploit a loophole in the law. our capitol hill reporter is working this part of the story, lisa desjardens. >> reporter: you probably remember in 2010 when congress froze the affordable care act, they decided that members of congress and their staff should personally feel the ups and downs of the obama care exchange. they wrote that into the law. fast forward to now, and members will still be required to go into those exchanges, our elected members of congress, but because of the way the law was written, vaguely, it's not as clear for staff. there's a very messy debate over that. really quickly, here's why. when the law was
unnecessarily. that's a shame. because if they put as much energy into making this law work as they do in attacking the law, americans would be better off. americans would be better off. >> welcome back to "hardball." i think that was the heart of it. that was president obama speaking yesterday at a health care rally up in massachusetts, the state made famous for his so-called romney care which was used as a blueprint to the affordable care act of the president's. the president is at war with republican who is have made it their sole mission these days and years to destroy the health care law. while the aca has certainly seen its share of glitches or problems, the gop has gone to great lengths to magnify and in many cases distort the issues. look at the latest headline in today's los angeles times. quote, another obama care horror story debunked. gwen moore a democrat from washington and jonathan gruber an m.i.t. professor in economics. he also served as an adviser to the white house and to congress on the president's health care plan. congresswoman, i want to start with you. i think s
's important that we have the local law enforcement really at different points at the airport to protect not only the perimeter but also things that could happen through the security checkpoint. the other thing that's important, there are teams out there, they're called viper teams. and what they are, the tsa runs essentially detection and deterrent teams. i know in talking to director pistol, he wants to further idlize teams at airports to make -- utilize teams at airports to make sure the american people and public are safe when they go to our airports. i think that with the better coordination of local law enforcement should help tremendously. however, having said that, you really -- it's difficult to stop these types of attacks. anybody can show up, as we saw in the navy yard with the shotgun, in this case with the semiautomatic, and you know, it's like a shopping mall outside the perimeter almost an open shopping mall. it's difficult to protect. these viper teams, i think, with local law enforcement, can provide that needed security. we are going to be reviewing this along with the

security for both tsos and the flying public. the development of a new class of tsa officers with law enforcement status would be a logical approach to accomplishing this goal, end quote. security at airports across the nation will be reviewed on orders from attorney general eric holder in the wake of the l.a.x. shooting. a gunman killed one tsa officer as you recall and wounded two other officers and a passenger. the suspect, 23-year-old paul ciancia, is still listed in critical condition at this hour. earlier, an attorney read a statement from his family in new jersey offering condolences to the victims and begging for privacy. >> paul is our son and brother. we will continue to love him and care for him. we will support him during the difficult times ahead. while we do not mean to minimize the grief and distress experienced by many other families, we hope that the public will understand that this is a very difficult time for our family, too. >> police say the gunman was specifically targeting the tsa, according to a note he had. working for the tsa seems like it's often a thankless
